Did the 2016 Draping trend ever take off? I’m not sure I’ve noticed that it did particularly – it certainly didn’t replace contouring. In case you don’t know what draping is, it’s a similar method of reshaping your face a la contouring, but using blush instead.
I wouldn’t even attempt to contour my face with blush – we are talking ‘draping your angles in colour’ including your neck. I mean, what could possibly go wrong? So, I’m just going to treat this as a rather gorgeous blush wheel and forget about scaring children with a multi-coloured, glittery throat and matching cheeks. Because the shades are all quite complimentary in tone and are also a selection of finishes (matte, pearl and a highlight) you can mix and match them up to get a colour you want. They’re fine as they are to be honest, and feathery light in texture so it makes a good blush palette in general.
As you can see, shades go through apricot to pink – this palette is Coral Pink Pop but there is another in Peachy Rose Pop. The difference, as the names might suggest, are subtle. Personally, I’d wear any of these shades except possibly the lightest pink (the swatch from bottom to top starts with the shade where the brush is resting and works around the wheel), but I won’t as suggested on the reverse be blending any of it above my brows. Above. My. Brows.
